Make your curriculum and research dance! The New Glarus Historical Society has an extensive collection of documents, photographs and artifacts housed at the Swiss Historical Village & Museum to support your curriculum development and research. You may want to start your research online with the University of Wisconsin Digital Collections, where a number of photographs and documents from our collection can be found.

We are also happy to make our archives and library available to you during regular business hours, in accordance with our published policy. An appointment is necessary; we regret that we are unable to accommodate walk-in requests to access our archives. Although we will attempt to accommodate all requests, some documents in the archives may be too fragile to make available for public review.  

Original publications of The New Glarus Post – an important and popular resource – are preserved in our archives, but copies may be found on microfilm at the New Glarus Public Library. Because of the fragility of the originals of early editions, we recommend that you begin your research at the library.

Please see our policy page for important information regarding our collection. 

Don't hesitate to contact us if we can help. Our organization is passionate about sharing the story of New Glarus and our founding families with all who are interested! 



Please contact us! We are delighted you are interested in our history and resources, and we look forward to supporting your project.
